We appreciate your support while we do our part to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Right now, we're working to postpone or cancel 41 performances. We're grateful that we’ve been able to reschedule many performances; however, we are anticipating a substantial financial shortfall from this necessary time of closure.
A few key points to consider:
- This historic venue carries $60,000 in monthly expenses, even with the lights off.
- Bijou performances provide jobs to more than 100 people in our community.
- For the past two seasons, we’ve welcomed 128,362 guests through our doors and presented 268 opportunities to engage with the arts, making the Bijou a vital part of Knoxville’s cultural landscape and economy.
- When we’re able to be together again, our community members will need a creative and social outlet more than ever. Our programs will be here!
If you’re able, we are asking our audience members to help the Bijou during this difficult time.
